Sutured Wounds and Equaide

So today we’re going to talk about using Equaide on a wound that has been sutured.

It is always best to leave the wound for a few days after the the sutures have been inserted to give time for the healing process to begin. After this so long as there are no open areas of skin between the sutures Equaide can be applied gently over the area to assist in sealing the skin and deter white hair growth in the scar.

It’s also quite common for sutured wounds to break open regardless of how good it looked when suturing was completed, this happened with a friend’s horse and she then applied  Equaide to the wound and thankfully it  helped with healing the opening.  It also probably helped to prevent infection entering the site.

And of course as always Equaide will prevent proud flesh from forming and keep flies away from the wound.

Am wondering if anyone else has used Equaide on a sutured wound, would love to hear from you if you have.  It’s always so interesting to hear from you all especially of course when you have success stories to share.
